The first Star Trek: Picard soundtrack is coming later this week. Lakeshore Records has announced that it will release the Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Chapter 1 soundtrack on February 7th. Lakeshore previously released the soundtracks for Star Trek: Discovery's first and second seasons. This announcement suggests that Picard's first season soundtrack will be split into two volumes, as was Discovery's first season soundtrack. Also like Discovery, Star Trek: Picard is scored by Jeff Russo, whose other work includes Fargo, The Night Of, Legion, and The Umbrella Academy. The soundtrack will also include Russo's score from "Children of Mars," the episode of Star Trek: Short Treks that served as a prelude to Star Trek: Picard.
Among the tracks included in this first volume of Picard's soundtrack is Russo's opening theme for the series. Russo explained his approach to crafting the track in a featurette released by CBS All Access.
'When I first started sitting down to write the main title I went through a lot of different iterations in my mind," Russo said. "But the moment I sat down and played this one melody that is sort pervasive in the main title I sort of knew, 'Ok, this is now what I think the theme for Picard is, the melody that will sort of go along with Picard throughout the series and in the main title and all this stuff.' Once I had that, then it was just a question of trying to fashion it in a way that felt right for the show."
